So your wedding or honeymoon is now booked and you are considering having a photoshoot at Le Bora Bora (Pearl Beach) to create the memories of this amazing trip? Thanks to this blog post you get more information about the resort itself but also about our ultimate favorite spots to take pictures.
Le Bora Bora (Pearl Beach) : Resort’s introduction
Recently renovated (2020) Le Bora Bora (ex Pearl Beach) is a nice option for your trip in Bora Bora while maintaining a budget. Different kinds of overwater bungalows (all renovated) are available. A few of them even offer a pool. The resort also has plenty of garden villas, nested in a beautiful tropical garden.
The resort also offers several restaurants, a spa, a gym & a tennis court but the asset of the resort is the main beach. On the morning the colors of the lagoon are amazing!
But enough talking, you clicked to see pictures right?
So you’ll find below our 5 favorite spots for your photoshoot at the Le Bora Bora (Pearl Beach).
Photoshoot at Le Bora Bora (Pearl Beach) : Our top 5 locations
1 : Main Beach
No photoshoot at Le Bora Bora could be complete without taking some pictures on the main beach. White sand + palmtrees + mountain view + overwater bungalows on the background = The perfect Bora Bora postcard!
2 : Overwater bungalow
We like to start (or finish) our photoshoot at Le Bora Bora with some pictures on your overwater bungalow! In the morning the different blue shades are absolutely amazing! And if you feel like it, it’s also the perfect place for a jump in the water!
3 : Tropical gardens
For a totally different atmosphere let’s head to the tropical gardens & coconut fields, on the back of the resort. The tropical plants, the ponds with lotus flowers and the traditional huts will definitely add some jungle mood to your photoshoot at Le Bora Bora.
4 : Bungalow bridges
Just a little stop on our way to the main beach. The bridges with the coral garden or the view on the mountain is very nice!
5 : Overwater deck
And last but no least you’ll find this massive overwater deck at the end of one of the branch. We really like it for wide angles & symétrique shots. Do you like it too? 🙂
Best time & light for your photoshoot at Le Bora Bora (Pearl Beach)
For your photoshoot at Le Bora Bora we would recommend to shoot on the morning (between 9AM & 11AM). The colors of the lagoon are the real asset of the resort and those shades are showing at their best on the morning.
Sunset photoshoots are also possible of course and sometimes the colors of the sky are quite spectacular BUT be aware that the water won’t look that blue. If the iconic vibrant blue color of the lagoon is the most important to you then we suggest shooting in the morning
All spots are suitable for morning or sunset**. It’s just about the atmosphere, the colors you like better !
In any case, it’s always better to avoid shooting in the middle of the afternoon: it’s very hot, the light is way too harsh and the best photo spots (the main beach especially) can get busy.
** Except for pictures underwater. We need enough light for it so we’ll have to shoot in the morning.
